Where we stayed: Tumble In RV Park
We headed down I-10 toward Las Cruces, the same route we took a month before on our way toward Carlsbad Caverns. This time we drove through El Paso (I tried not to look as we cars merged on and off the freeway around us...sometimes slowing down awkardly letting us in front of them or getting on really slowly as we try to slow down our 20,000lbs. The most interesting part of driving through El Paso was being able to see over the border into Juarez, Mexico. A city known for drug smuggling and violence (since Albuquerque we've been watching Breaking Bad), you can easily tell a difference from the US and this part of Mexico by looking through the chain link fence that separates El Paso from Juarez.
The highlight of our drive was hitting a town called Marfa in the middle of nothing in West Texas. Here outside Marfa along the highway is an art installation called Prada Marfa. We took a couple snaps and were off again to find a place to call it a day.
We tumbed in to a hip little rv park. There green building was a large rec room that had a shared kitchen and table, some games and a firepit.
Someone had a good night...
I had hope to go to one of the funky restaurants for dinner, but everything seemed to be closed.
Cochineal looked tasty, maybe a bit fancy for a family of five in a Winnebago, but didn't seem to be open.
Capri Kitchen looked right up my alley...I mean come one... ice cream topped with a crispy cookie...mmmmm! But was closed.
And Planet Marfa... Thought their menu was not so impressive, the did serve up nachos and had a funky cool old school bus parked in their courtyard and tee pee to explore. But the sign read, "Closed between Thanksgiving and Spring," or something like that. Bummer. Looks like I was making dinner.
I'll be sharing our travel plans, some reviews, cooking ideas (because I know you are all jealous of my easy-bake oven), and ... oh who am I kidding?! I'll be lucky to get our photos posted!
